look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Deep copper color and the medium-tall, beige head is very compact but bit light. Dissipates slowly into decent lacings.

S: Rich sweet, dark malt. Dark dried fruits, some bitter hops. Very bready, almost like Swedish rye crisp-bread. Some faint citric notes.

T: Syrupy sweet, very sweet. Lots of dark dried fruits, raisins and plums. Faint bitter hops in the back, but this is very sweet.

M: Smooth and thick, creamy body with low dissipation and a sweet, but short aftertaste.

O: Nice Doppelbock, perhaps a bit too sweet (!?!?) if that even is possible when it comes to Doppelbocks.

500 ML bottle poured into a pint glass. No bottling date.

Pours a medium brown color with a light white head. Smell is typical for the style - very malty with caramel, toffee and other similar notes. Taste is more of the same, and again very true to the style. very malty and a tad sweet. toasty. Mouthfeel is medium. maybe a bit lacking in this area as it doesnt go down smoothly. medium carbonation.

overall this is a very good representation of what a doppel bock is supposed to be. its not outstanding and wont blow you away, but if youre a fan of this style that not a lot of american breweries do right, then this beer will suffice nicely.

This beer was an unexpected surprise. Good looking deep-copper colour.

Thin head that rapidly cleared to the thinnest peripheral head of bubbles.

Fat molasses flavour rolling over the tongue. Smokey rich molasses, which at times can threaten to become a bit too too rich to my dry-favouring palette.

Would enjoy this again, but it's a bit too full-on for me to make this a session beer. People who favour the richer/stronger end of the spectrum might find it very interesting though.
